Alvar Aalto: Chaise - 448

Chaise en hêtre naturel.

Designed in 1933/35 by Alvar Aalto. This chair is part of a collection of furniture design for the Municipal Library of Viipuri. The collection is characterized by a bentwood leg for which Aalto is justly famous. The leg is formed of a solid piece of wood into which cuts have been made at one end and thin glue covered wood strips inserted. The resulting laminated end is bent at a sharp angle. This was Aalto's brilliantly simple solution to the problem of attaching a vertical leg to a horizontal plane.
